  • Yakan: “God really loves us (incl.) very much. Formerly we (incl.) really couldn’t do anything in order to be freed from our (incl.) sin. But when the day arrived which God had appointed/arranged, Isa Almasi died because of us (incl.) sinful people.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Just think about God’s favor to us. For at the time decided by God, when there was nothing we could do to free ourselves of punishment, Christ died in the place of us (incl.) transgressors.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
